Rebellion in Huntington Beach

 

Our first Revolutionary War events began in the 1990s under the direction of the late Maureen Rivers, formerly of Lexington, Massachusetts and a great proponent of Early American history. These events began around the same time as our famous Civil War Days events and we are proud to now be expanding the Revolution into HB Central Park.
